Microsoft is trying really hard to go down the path of bankruptcy aren't they?


Partly to blame for Ballmer trying to turn Microsoft into a do-it-all services company.

Microsoft releases new os versions all the time.

People are adverse to change at first all the time. Your hatred for the os will erode eventually. People hated XP when it first launched too. The new graphical changes scared people unwilling to give it a shot. Hell my own father was adverse to it until he actually tried it 3 years after release. Opinions change over time. I'm not wrong.


XP did have a classic mode however. Many of the complaints regarding XP(and Vista for that matter) was that people had stability problems and it required good hardware, whereas all the complaints regarding Win8 is about the UI change.
A cloud based Windows sounds like more problems than it's worth.

I doubt they're really being given a choice.

Not really surprised. Adobe's doing, MS trying to rent Office to you, nobody wants to just give you products anymore.

Cloud. Nice so since I can't even download a 7.5 GB patch for L4D2 now I won't even be able to turn on the computer. Yay! Time to invest in Warhammer figurines again.

Windows 7 will the be the last OS I ever use from Microsoft. I haven't used Windows 8 yet, I certainly don't give a damn about Windows 9. I'm not giving MS any more of my money.

Windows 8 has received lots of criticism, MS thinks they can fool the public by literally forcing the consumers to pay for windows 8 through their licensing fees with desktop manufacturers (ie the windows tax), and that hasn't worked. Public schools and business enterprises have yet to upgrade to windows 8, I doubt they will, although they still have to pay for the overinflated licenses just to use a broken OS.
